Wedding Wednesday: First Look

I am so happy that I was able to convince Michael to do the first look! He told me later on that before the ceremony, his sisters asked him how the first look was and he said it was incredible and one of the best moments of his life and he highly recommended it. I refrained from saying, "I told you so." ;)

This time I'm seriously going to let the pictures speak for themselves, no descriptions. I know, it's totally unheard of from me. But...I'm including like thirty pictures, so it's lengthy enough already. These were probably my favorite moments out of the whole day.


I'm linking up with Macy for Wedding Wednesday.

  2. So precious! I love first look reactions... that's why I love first looks - the pressure is off from a whole crowd looking at you - you can just be the two of you (plus photographers who are easy to ignore) :) haha

  3. Ahhh, you guys are too cute! We didn't do a first look and I'm ok with that, but given the choice again I would have to put some serious thought into my answer. Your pictures make me lean toward a "yes"!

  4. We didn't do a first look at our wedding, but I love seeing pictures from other people's first look. It's such a special time for just the two of y'all on a day that's definitely chaotic!

  5. D'AWWWW! Love all the pics! I always stare at the groom when the bride first walks in, because I love seeing the look on his face when he first sees her. This captures that special moment privately, which I adore. Both of you look so happy!

  11. Oh my goodness, this is precious and gave me all the feels. I love his reaction in the 4th one, the one where he's holding your hands and looks like the breath was knocked out of him (lol), and how you are just smiling from the inside out in all of them. All so perfect. I have wondered if I will want to do this at my wedding. I thought I would want to see his look when I walk down the aisle for the first time, but to have that look all to yourself beforehand might be even better!

  15. This is weird, but my favourite shot is the one where you have your dress hiked up crossing the road almost Beatles style. You two are so adorable.

  17. Awwwww stop it i'm getting teary-eyed over here! I love love first looks and i'm happy you convinced him. I think people who don't kind of regret it! But I guess it's a personal decision after all :)

  20. You guys are too cute here. I love love love seeing first looks. Wedding days can be nerve racking but there is nothing but pure joy on your faces to be together. We did a first look too which had a benefit we couldn't have guessed since it poured during our wedding so those were our only outdoor photos. Ha! So glad that you convinced Michael to do this with you

  23. since i'm recently engaged, your wedding wednesday posts have been my absolute favorite! i'm so on the fence about first looks. I know it's always been dubbed "bad luck", but from what i've learned that's a little bit, maybe old fashioned(?) now days because i see so many people doing them now. I do like the idea that the groom gets a more private view of his girl before the whole rest of the wedding guests do. it seems a tad more intimate to me.

  24. I LOVE your purple sash/ribbon I don't know what to call it haha! It's such a pretty touch to your dress. You guys look so great together! Love the abbey road walking across the street pic and the fall leaves! I totally want to do a first look!
